Work occurring North of Richfield, on STH 175 at Scenic North and Western include grading, gravel placement, concrete curb and gutter, lower layer of asphalt, landscaping, guard rail replacement, signal flashers at Pioneer Road, final lift of asphalt, pavement marking, signing and remaining landscaping. WE-Energies Gas has lowered their facility at Scenic North and Western. The asphalt surface is not scheduled until October, when the entire project from Germantown to Slinger is ready to be paved.
South of the Village, traffic on Lannon Road is open to I-41 and County Highway Q. On August 9th, traffic on Lannon Road will halt completely while the contractor completes all the inner work at the roundabout. Barricades will be placed at the Park 'n Ride at the freeway with no access. All traffic will utilize I-41 to CTH "Q" as the detour route. Traffic going eastbound will stay on CTH “Q” to I-41. Barricades will be placed at the west project limits on Lannon Road with no access. The roundabout will remain closed until Saturday, August 26th. It will be reopened when the department of transportation can complete pavement marking, signing and lighting.
Work from the south project limits to the roundabout will also be addressed during the shutdown, which will include milling the asphalt surface and placing two new lifts, pavement marking, signing and landscaping as necessary. Milling and paving will be a moving operation and will be flagged to traffic. Traffic can enter from the south on Appleton Avenue and get to the Moose Lodge driveway. There will be additional barricades at the Moose Lodge for no traffic entering the roundabout. If barricades are slid open during the day, it is solely for the use of the construction crews. State Patrol will be utilized if necessary. During the shutdown there will be multiple crews working long hours and weekends if necessary to get the work done. Please do not move barricades and create a liability.
While the roundabout is under construction, there will be work done to remove and replace the concrete box culvert at Willow Creek. Initial work will focus on digging a temporary channel for the water. The structure work is anticipated to take about 6 weeks. The work will being Monday, August 7th and conclude Saturday, August 26th. However, STH175 will remain closed to thru traffic. The completion date for the entire project is early November.
Residents on the mainline from Willow Creek to Hilltop are scheduled for concrete curb & gutter sometime the week of August 21st. As we get closer, the contractor will drop off a schedule to each home and business involved. You may we out of your driveway up to ten days for concrete cure. The contractor will put together a plan to give information on where to park during this process.
The houses that are located north of the roundabout and south of Willow Creek beginning on Wednesday, August 9th, will enter and exit on Lannon Road to the west. The other roadways will be permanently closed with barricades and snow fence. Garbage pick-up, UPS deliveries, etc., and all emergency vehicles, fire & ambulance will access these homes from CTH “Q” west at the signal to Lannon Road.
